I’ve been living with my olds for the past few weeks and I adore them but I get so mad that they’re in their mid eighties and still won’t use their good china or any of their nicer things. Two years ago I bought my granddad a bottle of Blue Label and it sat in their liquor cabinet unopened until I found it recently. He didn’t even open it for his 50th wedding anniversary. I CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY’RE WAITING FOR.

I’m all about using and wearing and doing my favourite things everyday. A minute of silence for those who don't.

I've been reading a whole lot more recently. What I'm reading is usually defined by my location. I just finished Tales from Firozsha Baag by Rohinton Mistry. It has eleven intersecting short stories, so simply and beautifully told and my favourite sentence in it is this: "Above him flowed a stream of panties, a cascade of crotches out of the heavens, while he descended slowly, hand upon the balustrade to keep his balance, for it was heady stuff." Heh. Get it here
